Likelihood to Recommend

Cloudinary

Cloudinary handles pretty much anything you have related to images. From serving them up efficiently to adding transformations on the fly, there's really little this service doesn't do. Their pricing plans allow you to grow into the right levels and their website dashboards are very helpful. I would easily recommend this for all but the simplest of use cases.

pCloud

  • pCloud is quite suitable for most users. It does a lot well, such as file storage, being multi-platform, and decent user experience with folder organizing and moving files around.
  • Where it isn't at apt would be in workspaces to manage documents like Google Drive, and even dropbox would provide. The ability to manage google docs, sheets, etc. would be a significant plus.
  • The ability to use a workflow to store file shortcuts (don't like their star system quite as much)

Cons

Cloudinary

  • Their API does require URLs that can get quite lengthy and not always easy to parse on sight.
  • Documentation on how transformations work and what they actually do to your image could be clearer (what does force_strip actually mean?).
  • Although a free tier exists and is quite generous, should you need to acquire a premium plan for your needs the pricing at scale can climb quickly.

pCloud

  • Offline folders (a normal sync rather than a separate folder would do)
  • Backups (ability to keep them longer and not be upsold for it)

  • I'm quite as impressed with it, although their faqs cover most current and pending issues. They take around 48 hours to respond to inquiries, while platforms like Gsuite have an instant agent and multiple contact options.
  • They do attend to you, and I do understand they're trying to keep a lean team and reduce operational costs. For a frequent user who uses cloud storage for multiple things such as website databases, etc. and has clients, it could be a tad frustrating.

Alternatives Considered

Cloudinary

Cloudinary seemed to be the most sophisticated with the most documentation and platform support. Other solutions seemed to be a lot harder to implement, however, due to the good documentation and API samples on their GitHub we were able to implement it nicely. Additionally, they have a lot of really well-known brands using them like Wired, Sky News, and eBay which gave us a lot of confidence that this was a good robust solution to use and to help others with

pCloud

  • pCloud makes the storage and retrieval process quite easy. With Google Drive, sure you can store lots of items, but the Linux functionality just wasn't there.
  • The same was the case with OneDrive, which I still use. However, it can be buggy and taxing on computer systems.
  • pClould is quite simple to use, flexible, and quite effective at what it does. And it's conveniently priced too.

pCloud

  • Less stress (since I can switch computers and not be limited by hard drive space yet having access to what I need.
  • Integrating Linux into our workflow (they take the cake there, and that makes life so much easier.
